Artek Rocket Bar Stool
The EA001 Stool by Artek is a shaped like rocket stool with three legs which is made out of oak and is available in three colours: soaped or in white or black lacquered finish. The Artek EA001 Stool was designed by Eero Aarnio: “A chair must be comfortable for sitting and after that everything is free.”
Artek was founded in 1935 by four young idealists: Alvar and Aino Aalto, Maire Gullichsen, and Nils-Gustav Hahl. The business strategy of the company was “to sell furniture and to promote a modern culture of living by exhibitions and other educational means”. The founders of Artek advocated a new kind of environment for everyday life. They believed in a grand synthesis of the arts and wanted to make a difference in architecture and design as well as in town planning.
